Each night millions of stars illuminate the dark sky and light the pathways that lead us through the dimness. Amongst those celestial icons lies Polaris, most commonly known as the North Star. Polaris is the most prominent feature of the night’s landscape, for it appears to be the brightest star in the atmosphere. Polaris has been utilized by many explorers as a navigational tool to keep them on course. Just as the stars fill the night sky, they also fill the ears and the hearts of billions of music lovers across the planet. Ugandan-born, UK-bred Neo-Soul trouveur Jay Songs is the musical Polaris, whose powerful voice and eloquent songwriting abilities light the hearts and souls of her audience.
Jay Songs is the total package as she possesses the beauty, the brains (her lyrical ability) and the beast (her vivacious voice) that will captivate music fans of various genres. Her mixtape “JS not on that BS” offers a variety of extraordinary tracks to include “Vacancy”. On this track, Jay is the boss lady of her corporation; her heart. She gives the listener the play by play as she gives her fellow his walking papers. The gentleman is fired which ultimately leads to a vacancy that she’s destine to fill. Jay solidifies her actions by stating: “There was an open vacancy/for his complacency/cause the CEO/don’t want to know/can’t have him working here.” Jay is now reviewing the resumes of qualified applicants.
The rising star continues to soar on the Patch Lunch produced track “Reflections”. Jay belts out thunderous notes as she offers life lessons to the masses. The rolling xylophone and booming drums compliment Jay’s flow as she sings: “Looking through my looking glass/Makes me wonder why things they never last/There? Faded dreams/so it seems/all that glitters doesn’t always gleam.” The infectious hook will connect to your ears like a Mike Tyson uppercut to a glass jaw. Jay Songs follows an award winning formula; great lyrics + bangin beats = stellar track.
Jay Songs chooses to blaze her own trails on the Chemo produced “Non-Conformist”. This track cements the fact that Jay Songs is an artist who walks to the beat of her own drum. The community activist grinds against the grain as she sings: “Non-Conformist against the grain/Fuck a hook I’m inside your brain/Are you standing for it/That’s a shame/If you slip you got yourself to blame. Her socially conscious lyrics and vocal dominance shine brilliantly as she refuses to conform to the norm. Other noteworthy tracks: S.O.R.R.Y., Semiotics and the inspiring Miss Stress.
The night sky is composed of millions of luminous stars that shine brightly upon us, but there is one whose shine is so radiant that it overshadows stars that are adjacent to it. The same can be said for the music world. Jay Songs is the incandescent celestial body whose brilliant rays will attract the attention of labels, A&Rs and fans alike.
